I grew up in Walnut Creek, California and have called the Seattle area my home for 23 years. My husband, Mike and I married in May of 2000, moved to Lake Stevens in 2004, and have called The Grove Church our home for 4 years. We absolutely love the people, mission and heart behind our church. We have three beautiful, active, fun and loving kids. Rachel 15, Christian 13 and Joshua 10. I have been involved in Children’s Ministry since 1999. I love partnering with families and teaching children about the incredible love that God has for them. When our family is not at church, you will find us enjoying the greater Puget Sound on our boat, camping, flying, and attending all the various activities that our kids enjoy throughout the year.
